How well do you know your Hispanic Latin Latino?

Politically correctness aside, those terms are sometimes used interchangeably in the US and can be really confusing for an American and other people, but according to the definition by the US Government and US Census Bureau, which following statements would be true, and which ones false?

1 - If Rafael Nadal were to become an American citizen, he would be considered a Latino, but not Hispanic.

2 - An Argentinean-American, whose both parents are German, is not Latino, but is Hispanic.

3 - A Brazilian-American is not Hispanic.

4 - If Quebec were to separate from Canada and have French as the only official language, the new country would be part of Latin America.

5 - Cameron Diaz cannot be considered a Latina or Hispanic, in spite of her Cuban descent.

6 - Jamaica and Suriname are also part of Latin America.

7 - Tatiana Golovin is not Latin, even though the Russian born former player speaks French.

1) False-true. Ha!

Even though he comes from a Spanish speaking country he would have to check white for the Census . However he would be consider Latino too, but he does come from a Spanish speaking country(which would mean Hispanic??)... well they speak Catalan too of course.

2) Hypothetically True... but how can you be Argetinian-American if both of your parents are German? Did you mean German-Argentinian parents?

3) True, because in Brazil they speak Portuguese not Spanish. He/She would be Latino/Latina

4) True, interesting concept, they would be Latinos/Latinas because they speak French.

5) False, she would be both. Am I missing something? Odd thing I actually know a family that knows her family since she was little.

6) True, but this is a known fact. I would hope everyone here knows that...

7) True

1. False. Hispanic because he's Spanish, not South American or Mexican or whatever
2. False.
3. True.
4. False.
5. No clue.
6. I don't think so
7. True.


Anyway who cares, that system is a total mess and I'm never gonna live in the USA, I'm Spanish and I don't want to be treated like a 2nd class citizen by 85% of the population who might think I'm a Mexican or something Not that I consider Latin Americans as second-class citizens (you'd have to be mentally challenged to take what I said for that but God knows), but I just don't want to be mixed with some other culture that is not mine and on top of it being taken for a second-class citizen

Honestly it's just a pathetic system, in Spain people are as white as in France or in Italy but yeah, put them in the same race/ethnicity/bs as South Americans only because they speak the same language

1 - He's actually Hispanic not Latino.

2 - If he was born and raised in Argentina then culturally he's Latino. Ethnically he's German.

3 - They would be Latino not Hispanic.

4 - LoL seems they would be a NA nation.

5 - Ethnically she's Hispanic and whatever her mother is so she can be considered Hispanic.

6 - Both are in the region but are not latino countries.

7 - Ethnically she's Russian so not Latina

Re: How well do you know your Hispanic Latin Latino?

From Wikipedia: "While the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, Hispanic is a narrower term which mostly refers to persons of Spanish-speaking origin or ancestry, while Latino is more frequently used to refer more generally to anyone of Latin American origin or ancestry, including Brazilians. Hispanic thus includes persons from Spain and Spanish-speaking Latin Americans excluding Brazilians (who speak Portuguese) while Latino excludes persons from Spain but includes both Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking Latin Americans."


1 - If Rafael Nadal were to become an American citizen, he would be considered a Latino, but not Hispanic. - False. He would be Hispanic, not Latino

2 - An Argentinean-American, whose both parents are German, is not Latino, but is Hispanic. - False. By Argentinean-American, I mean an American citizen who was born in Argentina and speaks Spanish as his/her mother tongue. This person would be both Latino and Hispanic.

3 - A Brazilian-American is not Hispanic. - True

4 - If Quebec were to separate from Canada and have French as the only official language, the new country would be part of Latin America. - True, even though a little hard to phantom.

5 - Cameron Diaz cannot be considered a Latina or Hispanic, in spite of her Cuban descent. - Possibly True. Some more restrictive streams consider that in order to be Hispanic, you have to speak Spanish, something that I don't think Cameron does.

6 - Jamaica and Suriname are also part of Latin America.- False. Even though they are frequently featured in maps as part of Latin America, the culturally English and Dutch countries are not technically part of it

7 - Tatiana Golovin is not Latin, even though the Russian born former player speaks French. - True

Re: How well do you know your Hispanic Latin Latino?

Latino =/= Latin american

Also, I'm South American and if you call me Latin American you're just partially right since a more correct term to call me in my case would be Hispanic.

Yeah a lot of Americans think that all Lations/Hispanics look alike and have the same culture. They think that all Latinos/Hispanics have black hair, brown eyes, and brown skin. What they don't realize is Latinos/Hispanics range from very white to very black and everything in between.

Exactly.. The thing is americans are next to puertoricans, mexicans who are mostly dark skinned, so they generalize for everyone else

Re: How well do you know your Hispanic Latin Latino?

While I love visiting America and know and count as friends several Americans, the one thing that gets me is the compartmentalising of people. I don't get the race issue in America. Yes, there are race issues in the UK (not what it was but it's still there), but I have to say no where near what it is in America. And, no offence to blacks on here, the whole Hispanic/Latino thing is a total non-issue here. In fact a reasonably good looking Hispanic/Latino would have a whale of a time! Ugly ones would just be like the rest of us uglies regardless of our ethnicity/race.

5 - Cameron Diaz cannot be considered a Latina or Hispanic, in spite of her Cuban descent.QUOTE]

And blonde locks!

This reminds me of when I told a friend that Goldie Hawn was Jewish (I enjoy pointing out to some of my ignorant friends/colleagues famous folk who are Jewish!). He nearly fainted! How could she be Jewish, she's blonde! He thought she was a Californian Blondie! I asked him what he thought her name Goldie was (citing Golda Meir). He thought it was a nickname from Golden for blonde!!!!
